Deforestation shouldn't still be a problem.

Deforestation is a major problem due to the different kinds of living species and plants that are dying. Although some of the causes of deforestation are done by forest fires, humans are the main problems. With logging in place this is a main cause of the issue. People harvest lumber, usually bringing the wood to sawmills or to a lumber yard. Logging causes the forest floors to dry out which creates a higher risk of forest fires. Calculations have been done to see how much logging has damaged undisturbed forest each year in 1996 and 1997, which was 10,000 to 15,000 km2. Satellite data is a common use to tracking deforestation in the forests. However, forest degradation releases large amounts of carbon dioxide into the air. Deforestation makes species lose their homes but the deforestation by using logging can be avoided by using hemp as a substitute for wood. This will allow forests to keep their lumber and not destroy forests and it is easier to produce and grows faster than lumber.

Feel free to add what you like on the issue.
